As I was writing this post, I stumbled upon another thoughtful interview with author Brett Lott done by WORLD magazine a year or two ago. As an aspiring wordsmith who really, really thinks it’s important to write in the name of Jesus (Colossians 3:17), I’m curious: what do you think about Lott’s statement to Christian writers:
His [Lott’s] Christian students too often see “writing as an evangelistic tool.” Lott tells them that “writing short stories as a means of evangelism isn’t art. It’s sermonizing.
(…and/or other thoughts on Christian art welcome…)
Thanks in advance,
